Have power at hand for any demand
with Microgrid and Hybrid Solutions
Operating profitably in times of slumping commodity prices, high overhead and increasing governmental regulations is a challenge for onshore oil and gas companies. Our microgrid, hybrid drilling and hybrid E-frac solutions offer a viable alternative. In combination with an
mtu EnergyPack battery energy storage system (BESS), they optimize asset utilization and stabilize power supply availability, thereby reducing operating expenses, carbon emissions and maintenance needs to power up profitability.
As the name already implies, autonomous electricity networks, or microgrids, are able to supply energy completely independently of the grid to remote drilling and frac sites. In addition to intelligently
managing on-site diesel and gas power generation assets, our microgrid solutions also enable the integration of renewable energy sources such as photovoltaic and wind power.
Hybrid E-frac solutions
Growing pressures to cut operating costs, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) targets and other factors are driving shale oil companies to look for more efficient alternatives to power their operations. Our hybrid E-frac solutions effectively address these challenges by optimizing power asset utilization.
Hybrid drilling solutions
Low energy costs are key for drilling operation profitability, which is why our hybrid drilling solutions are designed around mtu EnergyPacks. In addition to optimizing the load profiles of power generation assets like our mtu Electric DrillingPacks, they store surplus energy and deliver it where and when it is needed.

Excellent solutions for microgrid and storage projects
Highly compact and scalable, these battery energy storage systems (BESS) are the ideal solution for optimizing frequency and voltage stability, power supply availability and overall profitability of onshore oil and gas operations. Covering the full power storage range from 400 kW to 2 MW, they store surplus energy and supplement it where needed within 1.5 milliseconds.
mtu microgrid controller
Serving as the “brain,” the mtu microgrid controller seamlessly coordinates energy storage and demand between individual power generation assets. It precisely balances power supply and use for every specific demand, thus optimizing costs, carbon footprint and availability.
mtu Series 4000 gas genset
Superior low load operation capabilities and excellent load acceptance make our gas generator sets a perfect fit for wide-ranging frac applications. Delivering the best power density in their class, they provide a high degree of safety in case backup power is called for.
mtu Electric DrillingPacks
Integrating a highly reliable genset and radiator in one easy-to-install solution, the mtu Electric DrillingPack delivers continuous power at full load capacity in virtually all types of operating conditions. The unit starts without preheating and performs without a hitch at altitudes of up to 13,000 ft (4000 m).
